Bios password ibm thinkpad g40

Sounds like you tried this, but it's worth a shot again. Remove the CMOS battery on the motherboard and let the laptop sit for an hour, then replace the battery with a new one.

If the only real issue is changing the time and date, you can do this in Windows and it will reset the BIOS clock, too, of course.

If the problem is that the time and date keep reseting, you either have a low CMOS battery or a short on the motherboard that is resetting it.

If all else fails, you might need to flash the BIOS from a floppy disk with the latest BIOS version for your machine to reset it and go from there.

PS: BIOS reset problems on laptops are sometimes due to power problems caused by battery packs going bad; check your battery pack, too, and see if it is working okay.

Good luck...

Twenty plus vertical lines in

Hi there.
If the line appear from the moment you switch on your Laptop then your screen has gone faulty and will need to be replaced. Other option would be to use external screen.

How to reset power on password for laptop ibm g40

If you're talking about a BIOS password, then you will not likely get it reset or removed. There are some laptops that have a small "Reset" hole on the bottom of the laptop. If yours has one, then it will say "reset" next to it. Most laptops don't have that option anymore. The only other way is to get the BIOS chip on your motherboard replaced. If you're going to go thru all that hassle and money, then you would probably be better off buying a new laptop or a reconditioned one.
